A new bakery and restaurant is set to open in a former site of Betty's of Holt.

Two Magpies Bakery will open at 27-31 Holt High Street and will operate as a cafe, restaurant and bakery, once planning permission is approved.

The bakery runs stores in Norwich, Aldborough, Southwold and Darsham.

The Grade II listed building has been empty since May 2019, when Bakers and Larners closed its Betty's of Holt business.
